Gauging the performance of SandyBridge

Subject: Processors | February 10, 2011 - 11:52 AM |

You could choose to find the delay of P67/H67 boards a major source of frustration, since you know they exist but not only hard to find but guaranteed to need an RMA.  Or you could decide that this is a great way to ensure that hardware reviewers do all the heavy lifting for you in determining the best ways to overclock SandyBridge parts, leaving you to do fine tuning once you get your hands on a system.  For those choosing the second option, you should drop by The Tech Report where they've just finished an investigation into the effect of memory speeds and timings on an ASUS P67 board.

"K-Series Sandy Bridge CPUs have unlocked memory multipliers that make it easy to take advantage of

faster memory modules. We explore performance with a range of memory configurations to see whether

Intel's latest CPU architecture makes good use of exotic DIMMs."
